    0-49 Blank
      Note: I’m not certain how to activate the following fuctions - you may need to hold for at least 3s, and also have Shutter Strobe channel (22/15) closed (DMX 0-31) at the same time, but I haven’t yet managed to get it to work…

12 9   Rotating Gobo Index / Rotation:
      Gobo Index - select gobo with Rotating Gobo Wheel channel (11 / 8):
    0-255 Index (0 - ~360deg)
      Note: Index doesn’t always hit exactly the same position (if rotation has been used?)…
      Gobo Rotation - select gobo with Rotating Gobo Wheel channel (11 / 8):
    0 No rotation
    1-127 Clockwise gobo rotation (fast->slow)
    128-129 No rotation

    105-127 8-Facet Circular Prism - Rotating

15 11   Prism Index / Rotation:
      Prism Index - select prism with Prism channel (14 / 10):
    0-255 Index (0 - ~390deg)
      Note: Index doesn’t always hit exactly the same position (if rotation has been used?)…
      Prism Rotation - select prism with Prism channel (14 / 10):
    0 No rotation
    1-127 Clockwise prism rotation (fast->slow)
    128-129 No rotation
    130-255 Counterclockwise prism rotation (slow->fast)
16 12   Frost:
      Note: This parameter is significant different to the Robin Pointe DMX Protocol
    0-64 No Frost
      Note: When the frost is activated (DMX 65-255), both gobo wheels return to ‘open’, and Zoom, Focus and Prism seem to have no effect
      Note: Min Frost is significantly different to No Frost!
    65-255 Frost: Min (5deg) -> Max (20deg)
17 13 0-255 Zoom: Max (10deg) -> Min (2.5deg)
18     Blank - might be Zoom Fine, but doesn’t seem to function
19 14 0-255 Focus
20   0-255 Focus Fine - Maybe? It does something, but seems to be a larger effect than changing Focus by 1 DMX point…
21     Blank
22 15   Shutter/Strobe:
    0-31 Shutter closed
    32-63 Shutter open
    64-95 Strobe-effect - slow->fast

    144-159 Opening Pulse in sequences from slow->fast
    160-191 Shutter open

    224-255 Shutter open
23 16 0-255 Dimmer Intensity: 0%->100%
24     Blank - might be Dimmer Fine, but doesn’t seem to function
